An Inside Look.

A little more of an inside look to how the curriculum works and what we do at BCS.

The students learn to read quite effectively and efficiently between preK and Kindergarten. This gives them a great platform to learn and discover on their own. The entire allinonehomeschool curriculum promotes children learning to think on their own.

For math, the students spend Kindergarten learning to count - not just a little, but really well and comfortably to 100, making it a seamless transition into math sentences, fractions, measuring, etc.
I have wonderful stories from watching the kids discover on their own - it works! Plus, they retain so much more through discovery verse me preaching rules. I just guide. It's quite effective.

We do emphasize a few additional things like piano (music), sign language, cursive, stretching/yoga, and quiet. Plus we read books and just enjoy life.

We promote working together, and what it means to be a peacemaker not just in words, but action. We focus on the importance of obedience so that the children will learn to hear God's plan and His voice above the craziness of this world. We try to help them focus, even with distractions - and yet be respectful and not be a distraction. Life's a dance! :)

I pray all the children find God's plan for them and understand the depth of His love and grace.

Back to School!?!?!? - Well not quite yet but getting closer!

Hi and hope everyone is having a very blessed summer. Although I'm not 100% ready to roll into the new school year yet, the anticipation of fall is starting to build. It's always exciting to see what Jesus will unfold through our time together. I pray that we are all able to grow in faith and love and that He will guide our time together.

A little bit of business.

First off we are looking to set up a work day either August 18 or 25. Can you please text or email me (or comment below) which day may work better. We can use all the help we can get. Projects include : tinning back side of roof, new back door, replacing front sidewalk with pavers, and painting outside. Also, could you tell me which project you might be interested in helping with. There will be some overlap -- but it would be good to have an idea so people can bring tools as needed.

I have posted this year's school calendar to the Upcoming Events. Please take note. Also our daily schedule has changed some so plea…

Garbage Pickup. End of Year BBQ. Music. Evan's Graduation.

Thank you to everyone for a great day and wonderful year. I continue to feel very blessed to work with and grow in faith with the children and families of BCS. The community of people God has put together is so beautiful.  Thank-you God for blessing us!

Psalm 28:7 The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.

I'm going to launch right into the bible reading for the summer. I think everyday should start and end with Jesus -- and if you fill up the middle with Him too, it's a magical recipe... and only one ingredient necessary! :) Jesus. 

If you don't read this post right away and feel like you are behind - don't worry! and most of all don't give up! Just join the reading for the day.  We read the New Living Translation (NLT) Bible at home and at school. But you are welcome to read any version you prefer. The best translation is the one you read! :) Here is a lin…
